Brad Pitt has some strong words for the paparazzi. In an interview on NBC's "Today" show Tuesday, Pitt said: "Let me be very blunt: I hate them. I hate these people. I don't understand . . . that they do that for a living." Pitt said there should be laws against celebrity photographers who "climb over your walls wearing camouflage and calling out your kids' names as you're trying to take them to school."

Brad Pitt, Orlando Bloom, Jodie Foster and many more came out to shop the preview night of Paris Photo Los Angeles , the international art fair open to the public through the weekend at Paramount Studios. On the studio's New York backlot, guests wandered in and out of sound stages, and galleries set up in faux delis and pizza parlors, admiring historical and contemporary works by hundreds of photographers. This year's event features a tribute to actor/director/artist Dennis Hopper , including a display of his photographic work (his portrait of artist Roy Lichtenstein was one of my favorites)

The second vintage from Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's wine estate in southeast France is a spectacular rosé from an unspectacular year. Made by the Perrin family of the renowned Châteauneuf-du-Pape estate Château de Beaucastel, the 2013 Château Miraval rosé is elegant and fresh, with a scent of wild strawberries. I could drink this very serious rosé all summer long. Quantities are limited, though, and this one may be gone even before summer gets here. Have it with radishes and butter, with toasts spread with tapenade, crudités, grilled salmon or a simple roast chicken.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are toasting to their new wine, possibly with the new rosé itself. The engaged power couple is releasing a vintage pink rosé from their 1,000-acre French estate on March 15 in the United States. It will be the first offering from their vineyard, which they acquired in 2008. The name of the wine? Miraval, the same name as their Chateau Miraval in Correns, France. The vineyard's predecessor had been called Pink Floyd -- the band recorded its album "The Wall" in studios on the estate grounds.

Like a mid-season coaching hire for a losing ballclub, director Bennett Miller inherited an uphill battle when he was brought in as the director of a shaky project called "Moneyball," but he had two key players on his side — and both of them were named Brad Pitt. With its half-dozen Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild nominations, "Moneyball" is now viewed as a quality contender in the Oscar nomination race, but the sports-film-with-a-message was clearly a longshot project back when Miller stepped in following the summer 2009 departure of Steven Soderbergh, who had spent years developing the script.

This weekend, the foundation released photographs of Gehry's contribution to the project. Gehry is one of 21 architects who are contributing their talent to Pitt's project.

The money will be donated to the Jolie-Pitt Foundation, the actors' charity.

The film "12 Years a Slave" is based on the true story of a free black man who was kidnapped into slavery in the pre-Civil War American South. But posters for its Italian release have marginalized Chiwetel Ejiofor, who stars as the protagonist, in favor of large head shots of white actors Brad Pitt and Michael Fassbender. Pitt, who produced the film, has a relatively small role, and Fassbender has a supporting part as a cruel slave owner. A spokesman for Lionsgate -- whose subsidiary Summit Entertainment is handling sales of the film to overseas distributors -- issued a statement disavowing responsibility for the posters, which were created for the film's Italian distributor, BIM. INTERACTIVE: '12 Years a Slave': Steve McQueen, Chiwetel Ejiofor on key scenes It said the the posters "were unauthorized and were not approved by any of the producers or licensors of the film," and that Summit "is investigating and taking immediate action to … have those posters currently in the marketplace recalled.

Based on a 19th century autobiography, "12 Years a Slave" is the true story of a free black man, Solomon Northup, abducted and sold into slavery in the emotionally vicious yet visually beautiful world of the antebellum South. Director Steve McQueen wanted the film to be "very real," says longtime costume designer Patricia Norris, and yet little documentation of slave clothing exists. With her five decades of experience, Norris created the look for Solomon (Chiwetel Ejiofor), Patsey (newcomer Lupita Nyong'o)

The impending departure of Brad Pitt's Plan B Entertainment from Paramount Pictures would seem like a blow to the Hollywood studio, which is suffering from a perception problem. The studio is making fewer films these days, and enjoying smaller market share. However, Pitt didn't make many movies for Paramount, and the Viacom Inc.-owned company has insisted it is comfortable with a new, leaner approach to the business. "Paramount's paradigm is a different model," said Richard Walter, a professor at UCLA's School of Theater, Film and Television.
